Default Jeep Or Sable

My 98 jeep wrangler is getting the transmission replaced. Also my parents are the owners of the car i just drive it and they said after the transmission is replaced i can never off road in the jeep again. My dad has a 98 Sable that im driving right now so i dont know if i want to trade my dad. So if you guys could help me weigh the pros and cons. also might trade then save for awhile and sell the sable and get a new car.

You'll decinetly look cooler and get more chicks in the jeep then the sable. Plus off roading didn't ruin the trans although it may have strained it. See if the shop can install a after market shift kit in for you this will help it last longer a stock trans allows the gears to slip a little making for smoother shifts but it essentially decreases the life of the trans a shift kit will shift much harder but the trans will beable to take more abuse and last much longer.

Just like with overclocking, you don't have to call them up and announce that you're taking your vehicle off road. And as long as you're not tearing it up in the mud I doubt it would have much of an impact on the tranny anyways. But I understand your situation and your parents not wanting you to damage it again.

I personally would stick with the jeep. There is just this feeling you get cruising around with no top or doors in a wrangler that you won't get in another vehicle.

Be careful with wheeling on construction sites. Make sure you have written permission from the land owners first or you and your jeep could be in lots of trouble. Illegal wheeling is definitely a big no-no within most of the offroading communities.

Oh yeah, and never wheel alone! Ask me how I know....

a sign only helps prevent trespassing, but it is illegal to go there regardless. it is not public property. someone can just hang out in my backyard.
